Here we go again. What is it about Sherwood Drive that causes some people and event planners to choose the area for unwanted events?
Some of us are concerned about our neighborhood being invaded by those unknown to us. The definition of residential is not racetrack, race course, or race anything, nor is it a pathway to the wilderness.
Anyone putting a lawn chair on, or entering private property uninvited is trespassing. Trespassing is illegal, which would then involve the police. This could be avoided by the marathon staying on McLane and not going on Sherwood Drive, a residential area.
If more space is needed, then cross Main Street and go behind the rodeo grounds. The present times sadly are not conducive to allowing unknown people in our neighborhoods. What are the plans to protect the marathon route from garbage and property damage? Just stay on McLane.
